Pinspiration - Naked Egg

There are so many cool ideas on Pinterest that I want to try.  I don't want to just keep pinning and pinning and never try any of the things I pin (although I assume, realistically, the majority of the pins won't get done).   But I also want to try to post the pins we've tried on my blog.  So here's the first one.  
I saw this quite a while ago and thought it would be so cool to try.  Finally got around to it last month.  Click here to see the pin.  

All you do to make the egg "naked" is soak it in white vinegar.  Here are some pictures of the process.  You can see the chemical reaction happening as the vinegar is bubbling and getting all foamy. 

It took a few days for the shell to completely disintegrate - longer than I thought - but it worked.  And here is a picture of the egg without it's shell.  Crazy!  

If you look at the original pin, you can see that you can do some other cool things with it like dehydrating it and making it a different colour.  I had planned to try that too but just didn't get around to it.  

The egg sat on our counter for a few days and on one of those days, I had fried up an egg and was having it on a sandwich.  Victoria saw what I was eating and said, "Oh, is that the naked egg you're eating?"  Oh my word . . . I almost threw up thinking about eating an egg that had been soaking in vinegar and then sitting on my counter for longer than I care to mention.  LOL! Gross!
